Wednesday Morning: Flash flooding risk continues; Drying out by the weekend

Weather

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect – an additional 2-4″ with locally higher amounts over 4″ will be possible. All need to prepare for potential flash flooding issues. You can view river observations and river forecasts here or here.

Today: More rain will move in later this morning and afternoon. Heavy rain may lead to additional flash flooding issues. We also could have a severe thunderstorm or two. Main concern will be damaging wind and perhaps some hail, but a tornado cannot be ruled out. Rain chance is around 80%. Otherwise, it will be warm and breezy. High near 82.

Tonight: Showers and storms are possible. Rain chance is around 40-50%, but may need to be adjusted if storms linger. Low near 69.

Thursday: Showers and storms are likely at times. Rain chance is around 70%. Any additional rain may lead to some flooding issues. Highs will be near 82. Overnight temperature near 69.

Friday: Scattered showers and storms, but not all areas will see rain. Rain chance is around 40%. High near 83. Overnight temperature near 66.

Weekend: We finally start to dry out once a stout ridge of high pressure builds to our east and over the region. This means it will be mostly dry and hot. Highs will be in the mid and upper 80s this weekend.
